As engineers striving to solve the challenges facing today's society, we know we cannot make progress without collaborating with the community at large.
Experiential learning programs and economically driven research and discovery demand in-depth engagement with regional and national industry. We encourage our entrepreneurial students, staff and faculty to translate their ideas into commercial ventures so we can enhance our role as an engine for economic development.
Local, state and national businesses with engineering connections readily and willingly support us toward these goals by inviting our students to solve their day-to-day problems and by giving us insight and advice so we can continually improve the classroom, laboratory, industry and community experiences we provide to our students.
Our students regularly find ways to improve the world around them through college programs including service activities and capstone programs as well as through initiatives they develop on their own.
